I am planning to drive upto Dharamshala/McLeodganj this saturday, 30th of June, and need advice on, primarily,

A) The route that I am planning to take. The popular and default route, I suppose, is New Delhi - Panipat - Karnal - Ambala - Chandigarh - Ropar - Nangal - Una - Amb - Ranital - Kangra - Dharamshala/McLeodganj. I have been told that an alternate route via Banoor is shorter by about 45-60 mins.

B) Were there landslides reported in this area recently? How are the rains in this area at this time? I would really appreciate it if someone would provide me with an uptodate report.

Thanks

Hi,
i'd suggest you to take the normal route,as far as landslide is concerned it happens in monsoon season and Himachal isnt getting any monsoon around that date.

Why normal route? The route via Banoor is also good and safe and every thing. It is advisable to take this route, as construction work is going on on the Umbala-Chd. stretch. Cross Ghaggar river on the GT road towards Ldh. on GT Road and turn right immediately before the toll barrier towards Banoor via Tepla.

A. No problem there. Go for it.
B. No fear of landslides this weekend. Anyway, that stretch is not known for landslides, the roads are quite safe.
